World Of Ash Book Tour

World of Ash
Release Date: 12/02/13

Summary from Goodreads:
There are two inherent truths in the world: life as we know it is over, and monsters are real.

The Pestas came in the night, spreading their pox, a deadly plague that decimated the population. Kat, one of the unlucky few who survived, is determined to get to her last living relative and find shelter from the pox that continues to devastate the world. When it mutates and becomes airborne, Kat is desperate to avoid people because staying alone might be her only chance to stay alive.

That is, until she meets Dylan. Dylan, with his easy smile and dark, curly hair, has nowhere to go and no one to live for. He convinces Kat there can be safety in numbers, that they can watch out for each other. So the unlikely couple set off together through the barren wasteland to find a new life – if they can survive the roaming Pestas, bands of wild, gun-toting children, and piles of burning, pox-ridden bodies.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. It reads like how the world would be if this ever happened in real life. It's dirty and dangerous. It's tiring and depressing. It's also hopeful and emotional. This book shows that no matter how bad it gets, you can always find someone that will fit into your life and that you can always hold hope for a future.

My favorite character has to be Blue. He is so lovable and energetic. He brightens up the whole story. I also really got into the characters of Kat and Dylan. They were so believable and I found myself hoping that they would team up and stay together until the end. I enjoyed their chemistry and was wondering if they would ever acknowledge their growing feelings for each other.

The only thing I did not like about this book was the ending. It kind of left me hanging. I want to know what happens next so badly! I hope that maybe the author will write a follow up to this one. That would be wonderful! There is so much more that could be written about this plague ridden world and the people that are trying to survive in it.

I recommend this to anyone that loves a great story that is well written with likeable characters. There is some rough language, violence, and a tastefully written love scene. I would recommend it for teens and adults that like surviving the end of the world type books.
